The Jamnesty Concert in the Lions Pause Sunday night supported a good cause, but it was no Live 8. The benefit show, which concluded Human Rights Week, brought together three somewhat diverse bands in one evening of music.
If it wasnt the Spirit moving in the Lions Pause the night of Oct. 24, it certainly was the feet of the audience members. They were bouncing to the upbeat melodies of Trevor Davis, who stole the show with a broad brand of blues-inflected pop, spasmodic vocals and personal proclamations of the faith that backs his lyrical musings.
I was captivated as Fancy Dancer Larry Yazzie began his dance at the Native American Weeks Opening Ceremony the afternoon of Oct. 24. I was hypnotized by the way all the colors blended together and made the dance seem exotic and surreal.
